    I also agree, however when you have a 400mb tiff and need to email it somewhere it can be a problem. In this case I use Adobe Distiller which does an awesome job of compressing TIFFs without losing any quality from 400mb to 15mb.

    For quality prints with fonts and vector shapes - only PDF, because it handle the vector shapes. But for photos, brushed graphics - TIFFs are very good - without loosing the quality.

    I use tiff for raster images...

    PDF is for multiple pages projects and vector based arts.

    This is MY opinion .

    Tiff the best

    As for the file to be printed, it is always better to send a TIFF file with LZW compression.
    The format often loses some graphics by what print can come out different.

    It depends on the format that supports the rip in the film that will work. In my case we can only use pdf or postscript.
    As said it's best to use pdf, eps or Illustrator for vector files. And tiffs or psd fpr photos. After printing workers makes the format required.

    Some printers want the Corel CDR format...
    Cool... i didnt knew that, thanks.

    Better you use eps or pdf. The eps have more quality. The PDF compresses the image.
    Either is valid. Tiff format is for use in programs like illustrator, inDesign, Freehand,...

    PDF Forever

    It is true. The PDF is a standard. It contains all the technical information needed to print and can not delete the images quality.
